Celebrate Father's Day weekend (and just beyond) with these local events.

1 Be transported to “A Night in Napa” with live music, wine and hors d’oeuvres from the Napa Valley area, and raffles galore, all set within a beautiful garden estate. The entire community is invited to celebrate during our special Night in Napa Garden Party Benefit on June 14, 6-8:30 p.m.

Open to members, friends, and newcomers, “A Night in Napa” at the Gardens at Elm Bank — just 20 minutes outside of Boston in Wellesley — will take place in our beautiful Italianate Garden, where guests can enjoy local beer, Napa Valley wine and hors d’oeuvres prepared by Capers Catering, and the music of “Them Apples, A Sugarbabies band,”

Sommeliers from VINOvations will be on hand to help guests learn about Napa’s great wines. Raffle prize opportunities include wine with hidden prizes attached, a catered dinner for eight, and a wine tasting party. Our display gardens will be open for exploring throughout the evening.

In the event of rain, the event will take place in our historic Hunnewell Building.

Tickets for the Garden Party Benefit are $100. All proceeds support Massachusetts Horticultural Society.

Tickets can be purchased for $100 online at masshort.org/gardenparty2018 or by calling Elaine at 617-933-4945.

2 Get your hands dirty at the Barber Reservation volunteer improvement day Saturday, June 16, then learn why invasive species are bad and native species good at a demonstration walk on Tuesday June 19.

Barber Reservation is Sherborn’s largest and most diverse town-owned conservation land. The Conservation Commission is in the fourth year of a state-supported forest stewardship program, which every year includes a volunteer work day helping to clear invasive species and other improvements. Join us and our team of goats on Saturday, June 16, 8:30 a.m. until about noon. Wear appropriate clothes, and bring water, sunscreen, bug spray and gloves.

Then on Tuesday, June 19, from 5:30-7 p.m., the commission will host a hands-on explanation of invasive and native species, how to control the first and encourage the second, given by Sherborn’s own consulting botanist Ted Elliman.

For both events we meet at the Barber Reservation parking lot on Western Avenue across from Stevens Lane.

For any questions, please contact Sherborn’s conservation agent, Allary Braitsch, at 508-651-7863 or conservation@sherbornma.org.

3 The Dover Historical Society’s three museums — the Sawin Museum, Caryl House and Fisher Barn — will be open Saturdays from 1-4 p.m. through the end of June. The museum’s current exhibit highlights Dover’s role in World War I, including posters, letters and uniforms.

4 The last day of classes for Dover-Sherborn schools is Wednesday, June 20. Half-day, then off to summer.

5 And just in time for the start of summer … the Dover Town Library will have a Summer Reading Kickoff: Mobile MiniGolf on Wednesday, June 20, from 1-7 p.m. Sign up for the Summer Reading Program and play a round of mini-golf right in the library. Open to all ages; no registration is needed.
